In 2008 Luverta Howard was lifting a tire out of the trunk of her car when all of a sudden she felt all this pain shooting down her leg and in her back. The pain continued to bother her over the years. Luverta went to a couple different chiropractors but she wasn’t getting any relief. She couldn’t bend over, move side to side and could hardly walk. Luverta’s doctors told her if she wanted to go forward with surgery they would, but she decided to do whatever she could before going under the knife.
“When I first came in I could hardly stand up straight!” said Luverta. Her MRI showed that she was suffering with 3 bulging discs pressing against her nerves. These bulging discs were causing her a lot of pain.
“When I came in my pain level was like a 10 but now by me doing all the exercises they gave me I don’t have any back pain!” said Luverta. After only 4 treatments all of the back pain went away and she only had a little of stiffness. Her goal was to walk on her treadmill for at least 30 minutes without pain. When she first walked in she couldn’t even walk for more than 5 minutes. Now she is walking the 30 minutes and excited about her future.
“I think that if I keep on doing the exercises that they tell me to do then I won’t have to have surgery,” said Luverta Howard.
